Opening on August 8, 2017, with 60 Kindergarten and 60 Grade 5 students, we believe that every student, regardless of home language, zip code, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or race is entitled to a college preparatory education. Recognizing the academic challenges students face in college, the greatest opportunity to eliminate academic gaps and ensure every student is on the path to college success and a life of opportunity, it to have high quality, foundational instruction in the elementary and middle years.

We provide a culture of high academic expectations, high behavioral expectations, and true joy. 

We maintain an absolute focus on academic achievement. 

We partner with families and communities to educate our children. 


We teach students to do what is right, conscious of life's opportunities. 


We believe that parents and community members are partners in our work.


We recruit quality teachers to teach to students' strengths and support students' needs. 


We will build, grow, and sustain Vega Collegiate Academy with these beliefs in mind, investing every stakeholder in our school's values, and our mission to ensure that every child, regardless of background, has the opportunity to attend a four-year college of their choice and lead a life of opportunity.
